12 Tips for you to help you select the best photography studio for your fashion brand

Finding the best photography studio can be a daunting task, and to make it easier, this blog talks about 12 tips to help you find the perfect one.

Let’s first talk about why finding the right photography studio is important? 

Good imagery is a building rock of an e-commerce brand. Hiring the right photography studio will help your e-commerce brand stand out and show how professional you are. A good studio captures your product in the best light and creates an unrivalled feeling by any other medium. 

Choosing the best eCommerce product photography studio is important because it benefits your product images, enhances your online presence, and leads to higher sales.

Now let’s talk about the 12 tips for you to help you select the best photography studio:

1. Quality of the photography:

Know the quality the prospect studio provides. Quality plays a vital role in giving the client confidence. A bad quality product image eliminates the professional touch and gives an amateurish look. A good photography studio will give you the experience that is needed to capture your product images

A good quality image fuels recommendations while leading to fewer customer complaints and returns.

2. Customer support:

You are a customer until you spend money buying the product and long until the final product or service has been delivered efficiently. 

Knowing the kind of service their customer support provides is more important than you would consider. How frustrated do you feel when you face challenges, and the customer support is not ready to do its best?

If you have been through this frustration, you know why good customer support is important, and if not, you must be a lucky one.

3. Price:

The prices differ from one studio to another depending on the services they offer but also knowing and understanding if the money is worth paying or not is equally important. 

We recommend not paying somewhere more than $20 per image. Yes, that’s what we charge. If you feel we might not be set up to the expectations, see some of our past work, and we will wait for you to connect with us.

4. Resources for retouching:

It is essential to find a studio with in-house professionals who can make sure your images are perfect. 

One of the most important steps to ensure the studio’s retouching expertise is to make sure that you have a good background check. Only then can you be assured that the studio has impeccable standards that will serve as guidelines for doing business with them.

5. Equipment with the latest technology:

Technology can do wonders at an unimaginable level. A studio that is well equipped with the latest technology will not only be faster but also cost-efficient. And with the technology changing so rapidly, finding a studio that is well equipped and updated with the latest technology becomes irreplaceable. 

We at FlixStudio use the power of AI to create high-quality on-model images and deliver the imagery faster than the industry standards. 

6. Turnaround time:

Make sure the studio you choose is always timely and will work with your timeline. This way, you will not have to worry about missed opportunities because of unavailability for product launches and sales.

A turnaround time of 24-48 hours is a fair deal and will help you launch your products faster in the market.

7. Product Expertise:

The world of clothing is not an easy one to enter. Whether you are a novice or have years of experience, it’s important to know what type of studio will best suit your needs. 

Before you move ahead with any company, please take a moment and consider what they specialize in. The expertise needed for shooting garments is different from other products, so it’s important to choose wisely before signing up for any services. 

8. Portfolio:

A studio’s portfolio can tell you if they’re a good fit for your company or not. The quality of their work, the size and scope of projects completed, and the aesthetic or style will be all factor into whether or not the studio would be worth choosing. 

It’s important to take note of how many clients they’ve worked with within the past and any collaborations with other companies. This will give you an idea about what types of projects they prefer working on and what market.

9. MOQ requirement:

Each studio has a different MOQ that they work for, some have no MOQ, so this isn’t an issue. There may be a tiered system in place for other studios that starts with low MOQs for simple products or quick turnarounds to high MOQs for complex products or longer deadlines. 

Making sure you know the minimum order quantity and choosing the one which requires a minimum number is a smart option.

10. Model availability:

Model availability is one of the biggest challenges fashion brands face. Making the studio and model available at the same time is a time-consuming task. A good studio will never make the model availability a challenge for you while following brand consistency.

11. Location:

Are your manufacturers located at different locations?

Does getting the product shot seems a bigger task because of the location challenges? 

If yes, do you know that AI and technology give you the power to do a model shoot even when your garment and model are at a different location? 

This is what a studio that uses the power of AI can do that. It also gives you the liberty to launch your product faster and have a competitive advantage in the market.

12. Final imagery: 

Being a fashion brand, you might be selling your products on multiple platforms like Amazon and Etsy apart from your website. Long with the products being present on multiple platforms comes a responsibility to fulfil the imagery requirements.

Knowing whether a fashion studio has the resources to provide you with different image formats depends on your selling platform. 

These tips will help you find the best studio available in the market and choose the one that suits best with your brand and your requirements.
